Spoon carvers diary #1: Keeping sanity in spoondum!

01-17-2013 10:47 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

It was good to hike again, the outside air was cool and crisp as I discovered just how much paper birch draped the edges of the pond that was once frozen. It’s amazing how only a year ago I would not have been able to identify so many of the trees I walked past when hiking. Perhaps I simply took them for granted. My interests although still in woodworking were not nearly as deeply investigated in green timber as they are now. A great deal of my exercises, projects, or ideas were performed ...

Pine Root #1: Kickstart my pine root lamp and shade project...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182951744/to-the-root-of-things-glowing-pine-root-sculpture I’m hoping to turn these huge hulking remains of trees into some awesome stuff. I will try to keep this blog updated, especially if I get funded and get to launch my project. I really love working with non-traditional materials.

Modern times and the art of Whittling

02-28-2012 11:12 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

This past Sunday was particulary nice out, high of 60, sunshine, and I thought it would be nice to get back in touch with the very basics of working wood…..whittling! I had purchsed a Woodcraft Grab Box of Basswood a little over one year back and knew I had a happy helping of material to work with so I grabbed my new Sloyd carving knife (Please also see my newest review on this knife in the reviews section posting later this evening) and set about my task. As I regained my southpa...

carving "Thunderbolt" #4: finishing muscle groups and starting the saddle

01-24-2011 07:38 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

He’s starting to look like a horse now, with the muscle groups indicated. I spent quite a bit of time getting the spacing better between the legs and defining the groups of muscles around the legs. A technique I like is to carve the lines and then to sand them so that you get a flowing muscle look instead of something defined by a line cut into the surface. I like to use my veiners for this and then carve or sand the edges back up to the center. Here are a few pictures. When ...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #3: More of My "Not just any box"

01-12-2008 10:36 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 18 comments »

Well I got a little more accomplished. I did a little design change today, I removed what I called the chin at the bottom side of the heart. I held a piece of stiff sand paper, & drew a cutting line, then proceeded cut off the chins.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Note; the cut off line. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A big improvement with no chins. I call this “Wooden surgery.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

THE BLANKET CHEST PERSUASION

10-16-2013 03:37 AM by TDog | 1 comment »

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

WoodShow Score and Fun with other LJ's

02-28-2010 04:53 AM by jockmike2 | 15 comments »

Had a great time today with Rustic Rick his wife Nancy, Billie J. and his wife Lou Ann, SteveMI, and Myself and my lovely wife Kris. I got a cheaper version of the Gripper from Woodline USA, at $16.00, and a router for my Dremel. Oh man they had some wood to die for, we just had no way to get it home. I’ll have to let the other guys tell you what they got cause I wasn’t paying to much attention. Needless to say I couldn’t find any Lathe tools to speak off. Or any thing else ...

Les Paul 2011 #4: Binding

12-10-2011 10:26 AM by Josh Sollows | 0 comments »

This will be a short entry because I don’t want #5 to be too long but now we’re dealing with binding! First thing I had to do was prep the guitar for the binding. This meant using a very Macgyver’d overhead router setup and routing all around the top of the guitar. I chose a cream coloured plastic binding because I was trying to stay as close to a classic Les Paul design as possible. I held the binding on with super glue, bent it around the guitar with a heat gun, ...
